There are challenges with Minnesota’s workforce. We hear about them every day. Baby boomers are retiring. The workforce is shrinking. Immigrants add workers, but there is no clear path to an effective immigration policy. There are mismatches between where the jobs are and where the people are.

Laura Kalambokidis, Extension Economist and Minnesota State Economist, is back as we finish our discussion about workforce challenges, and opportunities in Minnesota.
